ElRoy's the Poor Boy BBQ

ElRoy's outdoor barbecue was started by James Admiral LeRoy, an Alabama native and former city utility worker who ran for city government several times as both a Republican and a Democrat. LeRoy sold his barbecue ribs on the front porch of a house at South 26th Street and First Avenue South, across from what is now the Billings Skate Park. LeRoy died in 1994 at age 76, but the house where he sold southern barbecue still stands.
